   Preparation Time: 1:00
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8 1/2 X
   4 1/2 inch loaf pan. Cream sugr, shortening and almond
   paste until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Sift
   flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to creamed
   mixture alternately with milk, starting and ending with
   flour. Add vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Beat egg
   whites until they form soft peaks. Gradually beat in 3
   tablespoons sugar. Beat until egg whites are stiff but not
   dry. Beat 1/4 of the egg whites into batter. Fold batter
   into remaining egg whites being careful not to overmix.
   Remove 1/2 cup batter and mix well with the cocoa.
   Pour plain batter into prepared pan. Spoon chocolate batter
   on top in blobs and marbleize with a knife or spatula.
   Sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden
   brown and cake shrinks from sides of pan. Cool on wire rack
   before turning out.  I was looking at a cookbook from a 100
   year old Savannah, Georgia Jewish bakery called Gottlieb’s
   and I found this recipe. Nancy Berry
